The Stronger Things Play by August Strindberg
The two main characters in this play are Mrs. X and Miss Y. Mrs. X is a round character
who wears a hat and a winter coat throughout the play. Most of the time, she makes fun of
Miss Y and her loneliness in the play as she hates Miss Y with passion as she pretends to be
stronger and on top of that, Mrs. X admits that she has changed a lot to be similar to Miss Y.
Miss Y is also another round character of the play (Strindberg et al. 6). In the play, Mrs. X
reveals that Miss Y was having an affair with her husband. Miss y’s name is Amelia, and the
husband's name is Bob. The protagonist in this play is Mrs. X. She is the protagonist because
everything in the play revolves around her as she is determined to save her marriage. She is
decided to go back to her husband despite him cheating on her with Miss Y, and she decides
that she was not going to question him. She believed that even after the cheating incident, her
marriage would be stronger than before. The antagonist in this play is Miss Y because of her
role in the play. Despite the fact that she can’t find her husband, she goes ahead to have an
affair with a married man knowing very well that this would ruin his marriage. Mrs x says
that Miss Y is evil and that she hates her (Strindberg, et al. 3). The setting of this play is on a
Christmas eves evening at a woman’s café corner filled with a melancholic atmosphere. Since
the central theme of the play is the theme of love, the setting around the Christmas Eve is
ideal since this is the time that most people spend their time with their families and loved

The theme of the play and the characters are very familiar to the reader today. Strindberg
mainly focuses on the importance and role of women in the society which is portrayed
through the conversation of Mrs. x and Miss Y who both lead different lives (Strindberg and
Paulson 5). Mrs. x is socially stronger because she is married while Miss Y is unmarried and
she doesn’t speak. The Christmas setting is very significant since the play focuses on the
importance of women since it shows Mrs. X’s family values and power over Miss Y. The
writer uses only a single letter...
